I just had to post this remarkable invention.  It appeared on a web magazine I subscribe to.  This is an incredible feat considering his warp is more even than mine usually are.  The interview is in French but there's nothing to understand other than watch this in motion.  I Want One!   Lego Mechanical Loom

Our weather is very cool at night now (low 40's) but the rest of this week is going to be in the mid- to upper-90's.  WooHoo!  Love it.

Garden is growing well, weeds even better.  Just keeping up with both of those is keeping us very busy.  Out to mow the front yard today, daughter is cleaning house :-)  then pool time.  We had very strong winds the last couple days and our pool is full of bugs and pine needles so a cleaning is in order before any swimming.

Warm weather always brings out the critter (can you say spider?) hoards.  We found this quarter sized mama spider full of eggs in her abdomen the other night.  We both are so afraid of spiders we couldn't get close enough for a good picture, but you get the idea anyway.

Update 08/19 ... we found two more of these on our front porch.  Guess I need to get out the killer spray before these hatch their millions of babies in my house.  They are all making their homes under the roof but in between the metal roofing and whatever goes under that.  All I can say is Eeeeuuuuuooooooommmmmm  Yikes!

Hi Sheryl, A few days ago, my neighbor, Jerry Collamer, sent me a picture of two alpaca's in bright colors of pink & lime. We're recent friends thru a mutual activity then discovered we're neighbors living 4 doors apart. Anyway, being interested in alpaca's, farming & moving away from San Clemente: I had just looked at an alpaca farm on line right before he sent me the picture. He helped my find your blog spot & though I'm using it right now, the box is super small & I'm thinking I might email you instead of using this blog space. I'll continue reading your blog, though, you've got lot's of info about daily life, which is super valuable to me. It's one thing to say you want to live on a farm & another to actually do it. k, this is as much as I can handle with this idybidy box. nancy nolan

Hi Nancy. Yes, this little box is Very small. The email address at the bottom of my blog is incorrect. You may send me a direct email at:

Jerry told me about you and I'd love to send you any information or pictures you might like to have. Thanks for writing.

Welcome to Woven Dreams Farm! Sheryl
